Freesat---Why is it that ITV1 is available in hd, and yet BBC1 hd is scrambled?

John Bod: It isn't scrambled, if you can see BBC1 HD on your EPG (Freesat 108) but nothing appears on your TV/box when selected, then that's inclined to indicate that you either haven't carried out a factory re-tune recently, or that your equipment is not capable of responding to the BBC's recent (6th June) technical changes to their HD transmission mode, this requiring receiving equipments tuner to be DVB-S2 capable. The spec being / S/R : 23000 DVB : DVB.S2 Modulation : QPSK FEC : 8/9.
